We went to a rescue at the weekend with the intention of getting an older cat and have actually ended up with a 12 week old kitten who was found abandoned in a cardboard box with 5 other kittens about 30 minutes before we arrived...honestly talk about fate!!

He has obviously been well cared for up until this point as he’s in good condition and very used to being handled. We had to have our beloved cat who was nearly 19 PTS before Christmas so we were waiting for the right cat to come along...and he has!

We can’t agree on a name for him though. DH and both boys want to call him Bob. I’m not against Bob as such but I don’t think he looks like a Bob. I want an actual name rather than a random name if that makes sense? Oh and hopefully the picture will have he is with his brothers/sisters!

He looks a bit too clever for Bob. Horatio? Malcolm? Anthony?

Eric or Keith

I love Eric!!

Isn’t it funny...3 other people in real life have said he looks like a Bob but I just can’t see it!

I actually really wanted to call him Murphy but that got a resounding No!!

Sorry OP - I'm convinced he looks like a Bob. wink

Bertie? All the small pets at our vets were called Bertie including mine.

Bertram when he’s in trouble.
